First Train...

There's always a certain thrill you get when the benchwork is in place, the roadbed is built and the track is all laid, and it's finally time to test the track. Last night, with the aid of some alligator clips and extension wires, I was able to run a train from the siding at Maryland Junction up the Thomas Subdivision almost to the Elkins Yard.

I've got a bit more wiring to do to make the switches on the sidings functional, and then lay all the industrial tracks at Thomas, which will give me the opportunity to run trains up and down the hill with purpose!

Anyway, I thought I'd share...
